Post Event Summary
Virtual LAN party #7 has concluded.
It was a huge success with a new record attendance and of course tons of fun. There were at least 120 unique gamers in Teamspeak throughout the event. Maximum attendance is estimated to be 78 at any given time with 60+ gamers typically online during evening prime time. That makes VLAN #7 about 50% larger than VLAN #6!
I wanted to thank AMD for supporting another one of our VLAN events!

It's time for the PCPer virtual LAN party #7
It's going to be the same basic format as our May 3 Virtual LAN party.
Btw, you can view a list of past Fragging Frog events and other gaming info in our Gaming Sticky Mega Thread. Be sure to check it out.
This is a summary of the format. Of course we are open to suggestions for change.
1. We normally choose a few games that there is a common interest in playing starting with our favorites like Battlefield 4 then adding additional games. Fragging Frog classics like UT2004 or Killing Floor are always solid alternatives if we need a change. I'm always trying to get some non-shooter games in the mix, such as an RPG like Torchlight II for example. Other suggestions are welcome!
Post your game suggestions to this thread.
2. I'll keep this first post updated with all important information so COME BACK OFTEN for the latest.
PLEASE NOTE: There will be NO set start/end times for particular games. All that will be decided in real time over TEAMSPEAK. So you are STRONGLY ENCOURAGED to join TeamSpeak for this event even if you have never joined in the past. Although we attempt to update this thread with the current game being played it doesn't always happen so if you are not on TeamSpeak you may get lost and lose track of what's going on. The TeamSpeak server info is listed further down in this post.
Please post to this thread if you plan to attend this event. I will maintain a list of players below who plan to attend the event.
